Hi all, I get this notice everytime I try to access ANY website, from Google to Amazon to CNN. I read this article, but does not help, as I can't press any tab, even the so called link, as in the pic attached. Please help, what can I do? Thanks

It's strange that the little box with the View Certificate button is not readable. Usually you can find an error code there and then look it up in the support article: How to troubleshoot security error codes on secure websites. If you Select All (Ctrl+A) can you see text there?

If you can't get more information from the page:

Start here, with your connection settings. Either:

  • Windows: "3-bar" menu button (or Tools menu) > Settings (previously "Options")
  • Mac: "3-bar" menu button (or Firefox menu) > Preferences
  • Linux: "3-bar" menu button (or Edit menu) > Preferences
  • Any system: type or paste about:preferences into the address bar and press Enter/Return to load it

In the search box at the top of the page, type proxy and Firefox should filter to the "Settings" button, which you can click.

Try "No proxy".

Any difference?
